Tiered Trays in the Kitchen
Whether it’s on the breakfast table or the countertop, a tiered tray will be used daily in your kitchen. Besides keeping fresh fruits and veggies close at an arm’s reach, these trays can sort mail, hold napkins, and showcase small pots of herbs. Be sure to keep fruit, breakfast bars, and mini bottles of water available for a quick breakfast on the go.

There’s just something about seeing my craft supplies that makes me feel creative and happy even if I don’t have time to sit down and create each day.

Tiered Trays to Organize Decor
There are times during the year when we want to decorate for the seasons or holidays. Tiered trays are a wonderful way to dress up a table centerpiece, give some height and interest to a sofa table, or add a unique touch to a fireplace mantle. Keep your decorations confined to the trays so they don’t take over your work surface or overwhelm the rest of your furniture.
